Now, I’m a fan of the frugal life, but I also want to live in a decent state of health. In this world of sugar-free/chia/quinoa/coconut oil/coconut water/paleo/vegan/HCG/[names of all other current health kicks], I sometimes get confused.
I am not a nutritionist, and I occasionally like to indulge in a Big Mac (and normally regret it for the next couple of hours). I am, however, quite good at frugal (the Big Mac thing only happens very occasionally; everything in moderation).
One of the BEST ways to learn the frugal life is to look at the way our grandparents lived (my grandparents are all floating around the 80 year old mark these days). What did they do? What parts of that can I implement in my life? These people were fundamentally frugal, so they have a million and one tricks up their sleeves.
Know what they had for breakfast? Porridge. Or eggs. Or porridge.
So, without further ado, here is Jamie to show you how:
I’m not in any way saying that any of the current health kicks are bad. Seriously, if you can afford them and they’re working for you, keep it up! But if you’re looking for a way to cut your costs without cutting your life short, there are ways to do that, too. Just ask your Grandma, or your Mum, or your Aunts, they tend to know stuff.
Also, chocolate porridge! So awesome!
